Chris Thompson wasted no time proving he deserved that contract extension. The do-it-all back scored the Redskins' first offensive touchdown of the season in spectacular fashion. 

Thompson, who is the shortest player on the team at 5-8, grabbed a tipped pass from Kirk Cousins and turned up the field.

He looked like he was about to run into a crowd of Eagles, but managed to slip every one of them on the way to the end zone. 

If you watch the video above, you can count five Philly defenders diving to tackle Thompson and coming up with turf. 

His spin move was part Tasmanian Devil, part Harry Houdini. 

Those are the kinds of rewards the Redskins expected from their 2013 draft pick when they signed him to an extension through the 2019 season. Thompson seems intent on returning the investment of decision-makers in Ashburn.
